Fred’s wife loves dogs. But, Fred reasons, no one’s perfect anyway. Not everyone can be a cat-lover after all. Some people have to be around to feed the canines to ensure that those dimwitted, smelly things don’t go extinct overnight. Cats, on the other hand, can take care of themselves, the way Fred can.
A Zombie Novella:
Meet George. With his neighbours out for his blood, his coworkers after his hide and his ex-wife going in for the kill, George has had a really bad start to his day. It gets worse when the Zombie apocalypse happens, and people whom he has never even met actually do want to find out what his spleen tastes like - chicken, most likely, everything does, with enough mayo ...
It happens to all of us ... our ride breaks down and we have to pull over and fix the damn thing. It even happens to astronauts, although in the case of spacecraft it does at least mean that the passengers cannot be terrorised by the owner into getting out and pushing.
A science fiction short story narrated via the dialogue of a divorced couple. Some time-travel may/may not have been involved in the plot (and/or the authoring) of this story. It's up to the reader to determine that.
While the setup was excellent, I felt it was a bit of a Deus Ex Machina ending. 3/5 stars for keeping me engaged, it would have been 4/5 if there was no Deus Ex Machina and 5/5 if not so many hints were given in the middle.
If you aren't especially OCD about details all fitting in, you'll probably enjoy this much more than I did, so try it.
A collection of anecdotes about gamblers. Vaguely entertaining if the reader regards it all as fiction. The author claims to have a system to win at the casino, but I'm afraid that the chapter that I read (that I'm now reviewing) contained nothing of value.
I'm a statistician, and a poker player too, and did not find anything in this book that could possibly be of value to other gamblers.
